Who is my baby's father?

Okay I slept with my ex boyfriend on November 25th 2018 and he came finished inside me. I then met a guy and slept with him on December 1st 2018 and he finished inside me also. I took a pregnancy test on December 11th 2018 and it came back negative, took another one December 18th 2018 and it came back positive. I am due August 19th 2019. Is there anyway to know???

Best way is to do a DNA test with both possible dads as soon as the baby is born. You can even get the authority of the courts behind testing if necessary, as it is in everyone's interest (including society's) to know who a child's parent is. Compared to many prenatal tests, DNA testing is more reliable and less costly when done after the baby comes.

A DNA test done after the baby is born is also legally admissible to prove paternity, unlike prenatal DNA tests. Be sure to test with both guys so you won't get a negative for one guy and then stress out that the test was wrong. Get a positive from one guy and a negative from the other, and you can put that kind of worry out of your mind.
I actually did use Prenatal Genetics Center our of Canada and tested both guys but I have been reading that place is a scam/not accurate!! Do you know anything about them??
I actually just submitted my samples to this lab. I’m really hoping they are accurate. How were your results?

Based on your dates, I would think the second guy is the father because a pregnancy test should have shown positive 16 days after, while it’s possible that it was really light 10 days after.
To K13: I was aware you had already done a prenatal DNA test, was suggesting that instead of the prenatal version, because the baby is coming so soon you just do a DNA test (with the baby and both men) when the baby arrives. It's cheaper, simpler and if you test with both men, more sure.

In answer to both of your question, I don't know anything about Prenatal Genetics Center. Some Canadian labs have issues, but I do not know what ones they are.
